This bridge carrying the A52 over the Erewash Canal provided some much needed shade during a sunny September stroll along the towpath.

The stretch of A52 linking Derby to Nottingham was named Brian Clough Way in 2005 in honour of the legendary footballer who managed both Derby County (1967-1973) and Nottingham Forest (1975-1993).

Another image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ outing to Curbar Edge in the Peak District.

The Nikon (not ‘Nikkor’) Series E 28mm f/2.8 is a lovely little lens, tiny and lightweight and it’s often in my bag when I’m not planning on needing a wide-angle lens. The Series E lenses are underrated but I’m a big fan, owning the 28mm, 50mm, 100mm and the fantastic 75-150mm zoom!

Yet another image from the recently developed roll of Kosmo Foto Mono that had been lurking in a Pentax MZ-M since 2018.

I must photograph this railway signal post every single time I visit High Peak Junction, where the Cromford & High Peak Railway (C&HPR) met the Cromford Canal until the latter was abandoned in 1944.

Pentax MZ-M, Pentax-A 50mm f/2 – 1/125s, f8, – Ilford XP2 Super rated at ISO 320

This roll of Ilford XP2 Super has been knocking around in my desk drawer for quite some time… I knew it was partially exposed but couldn’t remember how many shots I’d taken on it.

One!

Taken during a ‘Photography Friday’ outing with Rachel in January 2018! Film loaded, first shot taken, camera died! (a different Pentax MZ-M from the one I’ve posted pics from recently).

The Midland Railway (MR) footbridge at Whatstandwell station is still used daily and was constructed by Andrew Handyside & Co. Ltd. of Derby as long ago as 1894!
